The back-up not only assists the individual parts, but allows these parts to assist other systems. We refer to this as “compensation.”

- Identification: The IMMUNE SYSTEM carries out this process.
- Neutralization: The DETOXIFICATION SYSTEM performs this task
- Elimination: The ELIMINATION SYSTEM colon and kidneys work to remove toxins.
In the face of such evidence, how can a diagnosis of toxicity be determined? First, the question of xenobiotics must be resolved. What specific toxins are there, where are they located, and to what extent are they affecting the body? Second is the overwhelming question of breakdown in tcontinue reading
